The monthly statement of the city clerk
show that expenditures for the fiscal
year for the maintenance of the city gov
ernment have amounted to IIBMM.Ol. and
that a balance in the treasury of $77.$UO
remains for the last four months. Collec
tions for the balance of the year will
probably equal a sum sufficient to raise
the balance of $SO.no. The average month's
expenditure! has been about I1S.0OO. If this
Is kept up the expense will all be met,
with I5.M0 or ift.flOO as a balance at the end
of the yesr. Borne of the particular funds
will be exhausted by the first of May.
This is true of the salary fund, which is
at present very low. The police fund Is
also low, but plenty of money remains In
the fire fund.
The last year of Mayor Hoctor's term
showed that the city expended nearly $7,000
for charity. The expenses of the city for
March, usually one of the hardest months
of the yesr amounted in 1909, to JM. This
sum Indicates, first, greater care In the
Investigation oF pretended need, and also a
much better condition among the poorer
classes of the people than formerly. The
branch county store haa had Its effect also
In reducing the demands on the city. It Is
qulto as easy to apply to the county as to
the city. The former expenses were due
In part to emergencies. Much money was
spent In smallpox cases. The smallpox

MsnilHmus proceedings will be brought
sgalnnt I lie Rttindard Klectrlc company of
Omaha In the district court today by H. Q.
Bneschc of South OOmaha to compel the
ssid company to record l is name as a stock
holder f Hie firm. Tho company refused
to do this yesterday because It Is evident
that other litigation Is to follow Immedi
ately, growing out of the effort Of Cecil
V. Brook to gain access to the books of
the company. If the mandamus Is Issued
it will be followed by action on the part
nf the new stockholder to cheek up the
books and see that all methods arc
scrutinized. Boescha Is attorney for Brock,
and Brock has assigned two shares ol
stock to him to give him a legal right to
demand that he be recorded as a stock
holder In the company.
An Injunction was brought not long ago
to secure possession or access to the books
of the company to C. V. Brock. Brock
sent his attorneys to examine the books
and they were refused admission, hence
Doaj Tags Now Ready.
The time of the dog tag has arrived In
South Omaha. The city clerk haa received
the consignment of tags and they will be
ready for distribution as soon as the city
council passes the new pound master's
ordinance. The male dogs will be decorated
with a tag shaped like a butterfly. The
tag for females Is an aluminium figure
nine. The butterfly tag Is brass. The new
ordinance provided that the dog license
must be paid by April 15; but mora time
will be permuted tills year as the ordinance
will not he passed by that date. It will
ctut the owner of a doff $2 to decorate his
'pet. If !t In a female 11 will cost $5. This
Is double tin- price formerly charged, and
likely en.uigli the pound master may find
a laicr miniver of dogs without tags this
year than ever before. The pound master
is to get SI for each dog destroyed. He
will not begin killing the dogs before May L

Rabbi Frederick Cohn Friday night gave
a spirited reply to the recent sermon of
Rev. Frederick T. Rouse in the First Con
gregational church in which be classed
Hebraism and "Beezncss" together during
the course of which, the rabbi said the
people of the present day have a right to
expect healing for the soul from the pul
pit and are not looking . for firebrands on
the altar. "The doctrine of brethren
dwelling together in unity of peace on
earth and good will toward man is pre
ferable In these days," he declared.
He cited a saying of Hebraic wisdom
that he declared was applicable of the
tenor that wise men should be careful of
their words lest they spread falsehood and
mischief and lest they be guilty of having
unnecesaarily and unwarrantedly caused
mischief and misery.

were In evidence.
Kelson C. Prait, nominee for city at

He urged the voters to cast their ballot
for a representative cltlsen. a man of high

amog men. "Such a man is John P. Breen,"
"Elect the republican ticket and Omaha

united 'now. than 'for some time. We have

ways a bad thing; Harry E. Oatrom, coun

this western empire."

"There's a Rewon"
Griet for Wife
Death of Bouse
Husband Never Ceases to Mourn for
Companion and Dies Three
Months After Her.
"Peter Bouse died of grief as much aa
anything else," said a close friend, talking
of the death of the man who had become
a part, of the Merchants hotel. "Three
months ago Mrs. Bouse died and her hus
band was bit harder than he let on, even
to Intimate friends. When I went up to
his home to help remove his body Friday
evening the rooms were Just as they had
been left by Mrs. Bouse when she died. I
know that, and noticed It, for I helped to
remove her body.
"Pete's friends had tried to get him to
leave the place and take a room some
where, but he would not. Ho mourned
there alone, and undoubtedly his grief, re
pressed in public, brought on the attack
from which he died."
Another factor tn worrying Mr. Bouse
was the condition of his brother, Nicholas
Bouse, a former passenger conductor and
later police officer living at St. Paul, Minn.
He has been failing steadily for several
months and Peter was esperting any day
a call to St. Paul.
Mrs. Moore, a sister-in-law, and William
Bouse, a nephew of Mr. Bouse s from St.
Paul, have arrived in Omaha to take the
body to Minneapolis where they will bury
it beside that ft Mrs. Boue.
